Help the Mulvane Conserve Artwork

The Mulvane Art Museum’s curatorial staff are working to raise funds to conserve artworks from the Museum’s permanent collection. This fundraising project titled Endangered Art includes exhibitions, lectures, and other public programming meant to update the public on the progress of conservation and to educate students, faculty, and community about the field of art conservation. This comprehensive endeavor engages the community on a personal level, allowing visitors and members of Washburn University to feel a sense of ownership and responsibility for our artworks.

For more information call: (785) 670-2224.

Student Fellowship Award

Named in honor of Rita Blitt’s husband Irwin Blitt (1928-2017), the Irwin Blitt Fellowship will be awarded annually to a Washburn University student who will work with the Mulvane Art Museum’s Rita Blitt Collection over the course of an academic year to research and develop a curatorial project under the guidance of museum curatorial staff and a faculty mentor.

Curatorial projects will culminate in an exhibition or an interactive multi-media project with interpretive content, the presentation of a choreographed dance performance or musical composition, or the completion of a research paper or catalogue. This fellowship presents a singular opportunity for Washburn University’s undergraduate students. If you are interested in donating to support this student fellowship, please visit or give us a call at (785) 670-1124.
